  • Is there any words needed to explain this photo? 😴 it’s Wednesday and I NEED COFFEE NOW!

I woke up late today, which I’m not going to lie, has shifted my schedule behind lots today. I am feeling the blogger guilt that I didn’t get any of the stuff I usually get done on a Wednesday morning and now I’m going to sit at work worrying about it 🤦🏻‍♀️ the joys of a side hustle, eh?

At least after today, we’re one day closer to the bank holiday weekend and tonight, I’m definitely going to chill out and *try* not to worry about silly things 🤣 I’m feeling some self care is needed!

Please tell me I’m not the only one that feels this way and is constantly thinking up silly thoughts of how I’m not good enough, I’m not working hard enough and that I haven’t achieved enough today 🙆🏻‍♀️ #NavigatingNorthants
  • [AD - Gifted] I’d quite like to be at Sywell Country Park this morning on this beautiful sunny day please ☀️ that would certainly take away my Tuesday blues!

This is still one of my favourite shoots @thewishfulluxury has taken photos of me for and I’m still adoring this dress! It’s comfortable and perfect for the warmer weather which I’m really hoping we have this weekend 🤞🏻this girl needs more content and only has so much time!

I’ve just been posting some of your suggestions for photographic places in Northamptonshire that would be ideal for photoshoots, whether you’re a blogger, or just someone looking to see some pretty places, on my stories 🌸 we are so lucky to have so many lovely places in the county!

Hopefully, as we have an extra day off, I’ll check one or two out this weekend where I can show you my next gorgeous dress that was kindly gifted from @boden_clothing ❤️ there’s currently 25% off until Thursday, so make sure you use my link to take advantage!

Whether you’re from Northamptonshire or beyond, tell me what places around the country you find pretty and photogenic! 📸 #NavigatingNorthants #LoveNorthampton #BodenPartner #BodenByMe
  • [AD - Gifted] Oh hey, happy Monday! ✌🏼 let’s take a bite out of ya!

Soooo I took a wee break from “the gram” this weekend as you may well have seen, I I was in Liverpool with Josh having a wonderful time 😍 we visited specifically to take part in Josh’s belated birthday present which was a tour of the Anfield Stadium, home of Liverpool FC. We explored, we giggled and we ate and drank (lots!) 🤤 I’m feeling refreshed and replenished for a new week!

I’m sure I’ll be sharing some of my Liverpool snaps with you soon, but for now I’m keeping it in N-town as a new blog post is now LIVE and it’s all about the tasty Mexican street food summer menu at @thegaribaldihotel 🌮 I can’t stop dreaming about those Pork Tacos!

If you’ve never visited the Garibaldi Hotel, or you’ve heard things about it and aren’t sure, I highly suggest giving it a chance as it’s full of good vibes, good drink, good food and fun! 🙌🏻 you can even play Mario Kart on Wednesday nights!

Now because it’s Monday and I’m pretty sure I’ll be sticking to salad for the rest of the week, tell me something tasty you ate or drank this weekend. Let’s reminisce our guilty pleasures together 😜 #NavigatingNorthants
  • Celebrating because it’s the weekend and I have a half day today 🎉 let’s get the @saxbys_cider out!

I grabbed some of my favourite cider (in case you didn’t know) at the Towcester Mill Brewery shop at @bellplantationgc after we visited the @althorpfoodfest on Sunday 🍻I’m so glad we have a good brewery shop locally to us!

I’m very excited for the weekend as we are driving up to Liverpool this afternoon with Josh, as we are *finally* doing the Anfield Stadium tour which I got Josh for this birthday last year and yes, I’m actually excited 😂 obviously there will be lots of sightseeing and food too!

Question is: where should we go to eat? We want somewhere nice to go this evening as well as tomorrow! Give me your foodie recommendations! 🍴 #NavigatingNorthants

  • Wishing I could dreamily gaze out of big windows onto stately gardens that I own, preparing for a day of singing, music, drawing, and dancing 💕

Instead, I am willing myself out of bed to prepare for what will be another late Thursday due to another Parents Evening. So, I’m already looking forward to a glass of @nosecco when I come home.

If anything, the silver lining is that it is the last day of term tomorrow before a week off! Just one more get up to go 👏🏻 I hope you have a wonderful Thursday! .

  • Child free days mean you get a chance to apply your makeup and do something with your hair! Yes to us mumma’s taking a bit of time for some self love and care! But still comfy clothes all the way, especially when your list of jobs fills more than one page! -

It feels good to have finally caught up with everything, just a few little bits and bobs to do and and that list is all ticked off! -

I’ll be spending the rest of the evening typing up some blog posts and plan for next month as I have so much to share with you all 🧡 are there any mum related posts that you want to see, let me know?
  • Yesterday I had a few errands to run in town,  and not yet had any food! so I was thinking of all the independent businesses that I've not yet been to and @matchboxcafenorthampton was first on the List! 
Owning the 'It's totally acceptable for a woman to get out and visit somewhere by herself ' Manta and dealing with MH it's kinda a big deal, I mean also,  and inspired by the amazing @cakevsscales when you see a guy out in a bar/restaurant/cafe etc, it's never questionable is it? But if you're a woman out on her own it can be a totally different attitude, and that's a shame,  we were both chatting last Saturday about how we like our own company and how empowering it is to on occasion 'Date' yourself which is part of #selflove so if Katie and Carrie can! .. I popped in to what was such a lovely and warm, friendly welcome by the owner Bing, and the cafe had an equally wonderful vibe, 
I  also chatted to a lovely lady who has some lovely artwork on the walls which are available to purchase. 
I decided on a caramel machiato 😄 and scrambled eggs on toast, they have some awesome food on offer ( was weigh day so SW friendly this time! ) but I will try more! You may think my choice was simple and boring but I can assure you it was definitely NOT. Absolutely delicious and the coffee was excellent,  I  even had a pumpkin spice! Latte to take away afterwards, which was also lovely, so if you're in town  wether on your own or with friends then make sure to visit because it's such an amazing addition to the town and you'll receive the most loveliest welcome and delicious food and drink! Bing also provides Sunday roasts! Which I cannot wait to try! Tell all your friends because this place is a must! 😊🙌 .
